Chlo'e (Χλόη, verdure, a classical name), a female Christian mentioned in 1Co 1:11, some of whose household (ὑπὸ τῶν Χλόης, where there is doubtless an ellipsis of οἰκείων, comp. Ro 16:10-11) had informed the apostle Paul of the fact that there were divisions in the Corinthian Church. A.D. 54. She is supposed by Theophylact and others to have been an inhabitant of Corinth; by Estius, some Christian woman known to the Corinthians elsewhere; by Michaelis and Meyer, an Ephesian, having friends at Corinth.
